Being able to consolidate your assets allows you to quickly see a complete list of every component of your electrical system. This includes equipment diagnostic, nameplate, where it is located, how it is used, and when changes were last made (and what those changes were). Also allows you to identify key components and the impact of potential failures.
When maintenance testing is performed, it is essential to compare current test results with the results from previous years. This comparison can reveal trends that may be indicating problems even though the present year’s results are acceptable in and of themselves allowing you to quickly identify and respond to problems before they cause major issues.
Electrical one-line tree view will allow for a true understanding your assets, their capability, lifecycle, upgrade expectations, maintenance requirements, etc. which all allow your electrical system to run more efficiently. Answer questions such as, What can be leveraged before more spending is required? What can be eliminated to save money?
Assets need different maintenance requirements at each stage of the lifecycle, so asset management can help ensure that planned maintenance is not overlooked, using predictive maintenance and preventive maintenance schedules. Prioritizing maintenance will ensure you are OSHA/NFPA 70E compliance while avoiding unnecessary and costly unplanned repairs and downtime
The average life expectancy of your electrical distribution system is only 17 years when preventive maintenance is not performed. When your electrical system is cared for, its life expectancy can be 35 years.
All of these benefits, in turn, reduce costs and increase the efficiency of your business.
